WRPI May Shut Down Internet Broadcasts as a Result of DMCA

The Polytechnic reports that WRPI may be forced to shut down its 24 x 7 internet broadcasts due to recently proposed implementing regulations for the Digital Millenium Copyright Act proposed by the United States Copyright Office. According to the article, " As a non-commercial community and student operated radio station, WRPI would be forced to pay about $4,000 in licensing fees to continue its online broadcasting. Additionally, it would have to implement new software and hardware to catalog statistics such as song title, artist, date, and time of broadcast, and retail album title for each song played online."
